These Look Promising...But Then Again...

The last time I played Worms on the Nintendo DS, it wasn't really an enjoyable experience. The developers did a faux pas by opting for the super old school 2D graphics of the earlier games instead of the bright colours and higher resolution 2D eye candy from Worms Armageddon. The game also lacked WFC multiplayer and to sum it up, Worms: Open Warfare was one of the more subdued games in my collection.

However, things should be looking up abit with Worms: Open Warfare 2 for the Nintendo DS. There's of course the nicer graphics, more games modes and more weapons (11 of them) along with the much coveted Nintendo WFC multiplayer. The following screen shot was grabbed from Gonintendo:
On to other things, the boxart for Ouendan 2 has been released. The picture (also courtesy of Gonintendo) looks rather gay, and if I may add, I actually prefer the boxart from the previous game, with a big 2 plastered on it for this sequel.

Preorders are open on Play-Asia for Ouendan 2. Just a little bit of trivia, if you were to look up Ouendan on the Internet, you may find that sales for the first game wasn't really good in Japan, but the international response to the game was huge. So there, get your pre-orders now folks.
